And like every year, we ask practitioners and architecture critics to write what they consider a success and what they consider a failure in a given year. We do it in the convention of Sink or Soar. We give our Authors and Authoress total freedom of expression and do not moderate this discussion. Rather, we are very curious about it. Statement by Kuba Głaz [...]

A few years ago, as part of our "10 Questions to..." series of mini conversations with architects, we asked Jan Sikora what - in three words - architecture is to him. "Context. Harmony. Story." - he answered. See how the architect combined these three aspects in his latest interior design project in Gdansk. [...]

Katarzyna Jasinska - "Light and Darkness. A space for artistic activities"

The work takes part in the competition "Best Interior Diploma" 01/2023- AiB Academy.

Mrok – przestrzeń wystawiennicza

Darkness - exhibition space

Art Activity Space "Light and Darkness" is a concept of combining two extreme, yet non-existent worlds without each other. The work consists of two basic spaces: the part that hosts light, and the one plunged into darkness. The whole piece is designed to bring the visitor into a reality that encourages contemplation of this contrast, reflecting on the strength of this juxtaposition, and at the same time on how these two realities seamlessly transition from one to the other and constantly [...]

If we are planning to refresh the facade, it is also worth considering replacing the doors to give our house a fresh look. Modern systems and components used in the manufacture of doors undoubtedly provide a higher level of security and aesthetics. Front doors equipped with concealed hinges are a HIT in recent years. What makes them different from others? Well, a great many features [...]

architecture

Architecture is the art of designing and building spatial forms and shaping the space between them. According to Vitruvius, author of the treatise "On Architecture of Books Ten," the basic principles of designing and constructing buildings are durability, utility and beauty.

Architecture provides a framework for living, working, learning and entertaining. The history of architecture is also the history of human civilization. It has shaped and changed over the centuries in accordance with the needs, current trends and available technological solutions. To this day, we can marvel at the elements of architecture of ancient cultures, admire the dominant styles in different centuries and see the diversity in architecture in different parts of the world.
